STAFF APPRECIATION WEEK: Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week is from May 1-5, so let’s get ready to show our Ivy Staff how much we care! This year’s theme will be tropical paradise; “Mahalo, To Our Sun-sational Teachers and Staff!” Daily activities are listed in the attached flyer. We need lots of volunteers to help and contribute, so please participate if you can! To donate items, please click here.

MOVIE NIGHT TICKETS ON SALE: Our popular Family Movie Night will return this year on Friday, May 19th. We’ll be showing Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile! Check out the attached flyer for additional information. Click here to purchase tickets!

NEW IVY HILL FAMILY RUNNING CLUB!: Join us on Fridays until May 19th @ 5pm for Spring Running Club — in a new format! Tie your laces, parents, and join us for a family neighborhood loop! All ages are welcome.  We will meet on the blacktop at Ivy, weather permitting, and families can run at their own pace through a neighborhood loop. Do you have tiny kindergartners with short legs?  Just run the field or a short loop around the school! Are you bringing 5th graders who want to do cross country at Thomas? Challenge your neighbors to a long-distance race through the neighborhood! You set the pace, you set the distance!  All abilities are welcome. Questions? Email Jennifer.marie.underwood@gmail.com. **Please note: This is NOT a drop-off event.  There is no adult supervision for unattended children.  You are responsible for your children’s safety.  If your children run at different paces, you might even want to bring TWO adults!  Be sure to bring lots of water, and dress for the weather!  Get ready to have a lot of fresh air and FUN!

FORMER IVY HILL EAGLES SENIOR WALK: Do you know a former Ivy Hill Eagle who is graduating High School this year? If so, they are invited to participate in our Ivy Hill Senior Walk on May 23rd! Check out the sign up sheet located here for more details.
